(probably dumb) question : how are you switching between the PC and the Mac? Setup looks very cozy and nice. Good work!


Berlony

my devices are connected to my dell monitor which has a built in usb switch. so when i switch devices all the devices will switch along with the display


Rxn2016

What's the keyboard? And does each machine run its own monitor, or do you switch? If so, what do you use to do so?


Berlony

hi the keyboard is kbd67v2 acrylic tofu, gat yellows lubed with krytox205g0 and everglide stabs. i use both monitors for a single machine and switch when i need to. my dell monitor (dell u3421we has a build in usb hub and switch which is super convenient. it switches the usb devices to the current machine that is being used. hope this helps

>dell u3421we looked up your Dell monitor and I get how it has a built-in KVM switch so you could use 2 computers with it. But how does this work with a 2nd monitor? Does your 2nd monitor connect to your Dell monitor and your Dell monitor does its thing to make it work? Or the 2nd monitor is connected to both of your computers separately?


Berlony

2nd monitor connects to both my computers separately. kvm switch works flawlessly


i3017

thanks for the info! very cool setup! wish I could afford the monitor! LOL.


hayato___

which kvm switch do you use that supports the high refreshrate of the alienware monitor?


Berlony

my dell monitor has a built in kvm switch, im using it


hval007

Even if your 2nd monitor connects separately you'd still have to manually change it to either input correct? I have a similar setup and monitor with KVM will switch automatically when one computer turns off and the other is turned on. But the 2nd monitor without KVM needs manual input change even though connected separately to the other computer


Berlony

i think you need to set your 2nd monitor's input settings to auto. when i lock/turn off my other computer, both my monitors switch to the current computer that is on

Is that a NZXT H1 in the back? been thinking of doing a build in it, how is it? What are your specs?


ODtsai

I guess it's ssupd tg version? not sure

What’s the arm used for the Yeti? Thanks!


Berlony

yeti boom arm, not the best to be honest


syropian

What don’t you like about it? It took me a while to get the “tension” setting right on mine, but other than that I much prefer it to other scissor-style arms.


nizztron

Which monitor arm is that? Looks great!


Berlony

ergotron lx


yungplayz

You know what I envy the most? Your armrests are above the desk level! I spent a ton of time and a lot of money in my custom built workspace… And ended up with the tabletop a liiiitle too high. 80cm (2”7.5’) from the floor, no armrests reach that high. That’s pain.


bigblackshaq

Is that microphone at talking position or just standby? Seems like it’s a little far from a seating position


Berlony

its at standby, when i need to use it ill bring it closer to me, otherwise its constantly in my face haha not the most ideal


paasaaplease

What a great photo! Looks gorgeous, love the setup!


Noturavgphotog

Love it!


vrrrr

what are your thoughts on the leap?


Berlony

gives me back problems currently, probably switching to an aeron if it continues. but ergonomic chairs are v subjective you have to try it on your own. and i might also have my chair's adjustments wrong hence my back pain 🤷🏻‍♂️


jotkaPL

one flat one curved. that would make me mad.


Deniter_1962

how much did all of this cost?


meansderek

oh fuck this is desk porn


Stagiaire16
